Call My Bluff

On-Air Challenge: Every answer ends with the letter F, and you are given an anagram of the letters before the F. For example, given the word "flub," the answer would be "bluff."

Last Week's Challenge: From listener Dale Shuger of New York City: Think of a common four-letter adjective. Then take its opposite in French. (It's a French word that everyone knows.) Say the two words out loud, one after the other, and you'll name a famous film director. Who is it?

Answer: Truffaut (true and faux)

Winner: Brent Jeffers of Pullman, Wash.

Next Week's Challenge: Name a classic television show in two words with eight letters. Remove one letter from each word. The remaining six letters, in order, will spell the last name of a well-known writer. Who is it?
